Westminster Attacks

Naturally many people have been asking me to comment on the incident in the heart of London that took place on Wednesday. I made a point of not doing so immediately; not until the initial narrative of the attack had been established and any possible aberrant evidence comes to light as a result. What we've been told: A man called Khalid Masood drove a car along the pavement of Westminster Bridge in London striking multiple pedestrians, including three police officers. One woman jumped off the bridge into the river Thames to escape. She swam to safety. Masood then rammed the railings of the Houses of Parliament and came to a halt. The driver decamped, ran into the forecourt of the Palace and stabbed a policeman to death with a knife. The attack ended when Massood was shot and killed by another policeman. Including the assailant, five people were killed and forty injured. That is the basic outline of the story. It is surprisingly simple. No weapon was involved other than a car and a knife. As soon as the news broke I received this message from a semi-skeptic Facebook friend: "Ben, I'm urging you tonight to please resist the calls of 'false flag'. Please, for me, could you please do that?" I think he means that unconditionally. Therefore no matter how much evidence might emerge that supports this being a false flag, we must still doggedly insist that it is not. Another great example of skeptic anti-logic, see here for details: As it happens, in my opinion, it's still too soon to say for sure. This could be exactly as the mainstream says it is. I know very well real Muslim terrorists do exist; indeed the British government has bred and groomed as many of them as possible in the mega-mosques they've set up and then deliberately stuffed their pulpits with Saudi hate-preachers, see here for details: Then again, there are already anomalies calling the official narrative into question that must be addressed. The CCTV coverage of London is by far the most extensive and intrusive of any city in the world, yet for some reason Westminster Council decided last September to switch of the CCTV for the entire borough "in order to save money". This means that, conveniently and perhaps predictably, there is no CCTV record of the incident. It echoes the death of Diana in Paris, see: The images published by the press are also suspect. There's a strange Jessica Lynch-type story, which Chris Everard has spotted, in which the "heroic MP" Tobias Ellwood battled to save the life of the fallen policeman by giving him first aid while the trained and professional paramedics stood to one side and passively looked on. As you can see, a portable defibrillator, a device that can stimulate your heart to restart once it's stopped, is sitting on the ground in the bottom left of the picture, out of the way and unused; even though Mr Ellwood is clearly carrying out cardio-pulmonary resuscitation on the fallen man, see: It's too soon to be sure either way, but these facts do not lend credibility to the media's assessment. A friend of mine, Dan Allspark, was caught up in the middle of this event and had to take cover inside Westminster Abbey. He has spoken publicly about his experience and at one point saw an injured child, see (About ten minutes in): Luckily he was not harmed by whatever really did go on last Wednesday afternoon. Whatever is real or not real in this horrific situation, all I can do is give my deepest condolences to the loved ones of those who lost their lives; and wish those injured a speedy and complete recovery.

Interesting. Regarding Ellwood giving CPR while the defibrillator sits there unused, Wikipedia has this to say: "Defibrillation is effective only for certain heart rhythms, namely ventricular fibrillation or pulseless ventricular tachycardia" - neither of which result from blood loss -- "rather than asystole or pulseless electrical activity. CPR may succeed in inducing a heart rhythm that may be shockable." So it looks to me as if this is probably exactly what it seems, given that Ellwood was there first and was CPR-trained.

Perhaps, David, but in that situation, I would still step aside to let the paramedics do their job.
